I have never been so happy to see this sign! ((Pardon the dirty splotchy windshield!))
My son Jeff picked me up at the airport…carried my luggage, and DROVE me home….It took 2 days to get me home from Birmingham, I can only imagine what those folks felt like who spent 3 months on a ship to cross that ocean!
It was however, the very FIRST time that I got to fly on the upper deck of a 747 Jumbo.
Yes, I was giddy.
Fewer passengers to share the one lavatory up on that level. Sitting bulkhead and having legroom were a definite benefit on this flight!
For those wondering how many hexagons you can stitch on a 10 day whirlwind tour around England, here you go:
79 hexagons in this section, two more to add!
Yes, you can have small scissors on a plane, but I don’t travel with them – I use the thread cutter on my needle threader. And always be prepared for confiscation at any time at any airport. Even when I have ben able to fly with scissors from here to there, that doesn’t mean you can go back from there to here with them.
Unpacking my goodies!
I love unpacking my fabrics…but also had to buy the Yardley Lily of the Valley because it smells like my Grannie. When I was young I felt so grown up when she would dab a bit behind my ears and on my wrists. Oh I loved her so!
I celebrated my homecoming with tea!
Thank you Anne for the Liberty hearts mini, Muv for the tea cozy , Dawn for the lovely tea, and Raynor for the Tim Tams brought all the way from Australia! My great granny's teacup and saucer and milk pitcher add a nice touch, don't you think?
I’ve not accomplished much else. I’m hoping the copious amounts of tea will keep me up past 10 pm so I can get my body back on schedule ---this morning I was up at 4am. ACCCCKK…boy does that make a girl tired in the afternoon!
Sadie Jane, sticking like glue!
She hasn’t left my side since I walked through the door, so I took the opportunity to trim her nails. Girls have got to do what girls have got to do!
So, to keep me awake, let’s draw!
Remember this drawing?!?
Congrats, Pat V!
Now who would guess that the random number generator would take the same 3 digits and just scramble them? I guess that is how random is!
Get back to me with your snail mail addresses, ladies and I’ll get the info to Quiltmaker so they can get those issues out to you.
I don’t think I’m going to make it until 10pm. I’m fading already, dang it!
